My original introduction for the Memorial

This is an occasion of great joy and excitement! Although we as the partial remnant of the anointed are bearing up under the Great Tribulation, we have reason to rejoice. We see prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes.
2Thess.2:1-4 reads:
"Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Today we can say with assurance, that the man of lawlessness is now revealed...the "falling away" has occurred, and the Temple priesthood of God has been fully trespassed upon by Gentiles.
Although this grieves our hearts, we know God's will.
Just as the power of Jesus Christ's flesh was brought low in death, so too it is God's purpose that the power of the holy ones is brought to nothing.

Dan.12:7 reads:
"The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed."
By what means will this occur?
Dan.7:25 reads:
"He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time."

Yes...HE will oppress the Holy Ones, dominate and restrain them.
We today know who "HE" is. The "Man of Lawlessness". He is Gentile, standing in the Holy Place, trampling them underfoot. How do we know?
Rev.11:1,2 reads:
"Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months."
Mark13:14 reads:
"When you see 'the abomination that causes desolation' standing where it does not belong--let the reader understand--then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."
""His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation."
For what reason did God allow this trampling of both Christ and his faithful brothers?
Dan.4:17 partially explains:
"'The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.'

Yes...just as Jesus sacrificed his life for others, so too must the 144000.
Rev.17:6 reads:
"I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement."
Why are these faithful killed? Why is their power crushed?
"When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed."
Yes, all the faithful must be killed. Just as Dan.12:7 said, the power of the Holy ones must be completely broken. (Luke21:20)
We know that our own personal power HAS been broken by the "man of lawlessness" who has taken over the Temple (1Cor.3:16). We know also, that while being exposed for who HE is, HE is also the "Wild Beast" from the "sea". That Beast "conquers" the "holy ones". Rev.13:7 reads:
"It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.". And at Rev.11:7, it is that very Beast, which slaughters the holy ones.
Yes, the Man of Lawlessness has been revealed!!!
2Thess.2:3 shows us that once he is, the day of the Lord can come!
What else are we waiting for?
The power of ALL the faithful holy ones must be brought low. As Rev.6:11 said, we are waiting for the rest of their deaths, to be "completed". How many more need to be killed by the Beast? We are told we can not number the remnant (Rev.7:9).
I say all these things, because this very night is a testimony to the power of Holy Spirit. It has awoken it's children to spiritual realities that we ourselves are incapable of seeing on our own. It has caused us to take our stand, so that we may be killed just as we should be.
Romans 6:5 reads:
"For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his."
And Jesus warned us....
"For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it." Mark 8:35
This is just as Rev.6:9 said..."under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held."
So then....tonight the slain ones gather!

Young's Literal Translation
"for wherever the carcass (slain) may be, there shall the eagles be gathered together." Matt.24:28
(Eagle or Vulture?)

The man of lawlessness is exposed! The power of the holy ones is being brought low! Once the rest of these are gathered in, it is accomplished (Dan.12:7; Rev.10:5,6)! Our gathering here tonight has begun this fulfillment!
